BANGKOK –  German National Bogdan Rejic has been arrested in Bangkok on Friday on fraud charges and overstay in the Kingdom.

Several women told the police they got to know Bogdan through dating sites. Smitten and having already hopped in bed with the man, they trusted him enough to transfer thousands of baht as Bogdan claimed he could get them iPhones from Germany at a much lower price. But after taking their money, he never did.

We’re not sure how many women or how many iPhones were involved, but somehow nearly THB3 million was transferred to his bank account.

According to the investigation, Bogdan arrived Thailand 14 years ago and has been living in the kingdom illegally while working as an extra. One of his recent jobs was for Hong Hoon, the popular horror film which recently launched theaters, Khaosod reported.

Meanwhile, Pattaya Police reported the headless body of a foreigner was washed ashore at Jomtien beach in Pattaya, Chon Buri province, late Thursday afternoon.

The victim is described as a large-bodied male, white skinned and dressed only in underwear when  found. He had no head and only one leg. Other parts of his body were intact.

Police believe he had been dead for more than a week, based on the state of the body, according to Pol Capt Winai Sanitphan, deputy inspector-suppression at Pattaya police station.

He said they will try to identify the dead man by checking with missing persons data. The body would be  sent for forensic examination at the Police Hospital in Bangkok. – By Coconuts Bangkok
